    Hi, I brought two new chickens today from a rescue centre. That re-homes exbattery hen's. I had them in the car for just over two hours in a cardboard box. But when i looked in the box the poo was runny and had some blood in. Is this just stress of being in the car or is it Coccidiosis? Also i have quail in the same garden will i need to treat them as well? What medicine can I buy without a vet in the UK. Thanks

    I don't know if it's coccidiosis, unless they have never had contact with the ground till recently. People use Corrid or Sulfadimethoxine. Try a feed store or livestock store.
